Get treatment for your shoulder impingement syndrome at J-CLINIC in Bangkok

Hello, this is Sato from J-CLINIC, a physiotherapy and acupuncture clinic in Bangkok.

We’ve talked about some of the shoulder treatments we offer. In this post, let me talk about shoulder impingement syndrome and how to treat it.

 

Impingement syndrome

 

What is impingement syndrome?

Impingement syndrome is when the subacromial bursa or rotator cuff is trapped or rubbing (“impinging”) against the top outer edge of your shoulder blade (the acromion). When you have impingement syndrome, it will be painful for you to raise your arm. You may also feel like something is caught in your shoulder.

Impingement syndrome comes from repeated irritation of the shoulder joint. It’s common among athletes who overuse their shoulders in sports like tennis and badminton (serves and smashes), swimming (crawl and butterfly), volleyball (serves and spikes), and baseball (pitching).
